Recently, a Punjab National Bank (PNB) employee named Rambir, who was working as a cashier at the Nauch village branch in Kaithal, Haryana has been accused of cheating several account holders by withdrawing large sums of money from their accounts without their permission.
According to the FIR filed by the account holders, Rambir has been booked under Sections 409 and 420 of the Indian Penal Code by the police.
The fraudulent activity came to light when multiple account holders protested at the bank after receiving withdrawal messages without their consent. Upon verifying the withdrawals at the bank, they found that the accused cashier was missing. It has also been alleged that Rambir never provided the deposit slips to the account holders.
The Kaithal Superintendent of Police, Abhishek Jorwal, has confirmed that an investigation is underway, and a case has been registered against the accused.
Kaithal is a city and municipal council in the Kaithal district of the Indian state of Haryana. Kaithal was previously a part of Karnal district and later, Kurukshetra district until 1 November 1989, when it became the headquarters of the Kaithal.
